dating tips psychic insights personal psychic - Moroccan girls dating

Preface: This is a guest post I asked Brenda to write as my dating experience is over a decade old at this point.Both she and I wrestled with how to talk about this topic but I knew I wanted to. Because I get emails ALL THE TIME asking these questions.So you can see my discomfort in admitting I’ve had boyfriends, when it’s associated with sex in a rural place where social status and respect is relative to your marital status or if you date.

As a currently engaged Hispanic-American woman engaged to a Muslim-Arab Moroccan man both in our 20’s, I figured I should at least share some light our experiences dating and make these “taboos” stop sounding so scary.

To begin, I want to say the thing some people will hate to admit: Moroccans date.

In Morocco, if you are unmarried you are viewed as a “girl” not a “woman.” Now let me break that down, it might sound strange since in the West we are raised to understand a girl becomes a woman through physical, emotional, and psychological changes from puberty and aging.

But, for traditional (and oddly some non-traditional) folk, you become a woman when you consummate your marriage.

On an almost contradictory point, I should point out in big cities some couples actually live together.

Illegally I should point out but again it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.

By keeping these experiences only in private conversations, we give power to the taboo and no one wants to feel like their desire for love is taboo.

The one thing I hope you take away from this post is that there’s no guide to “dating a Moroccan.” They’re human just like everyone else.

Use the same measuring stick and sense of judgement and it will really help answer your questions!
